Who would endorse genital mutilations at any age?

The Episcopal sect that's who. 

I admit that I have been ignoring the Episcopal sect's latest General Convention because I read "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" one too many times. Others have been digging through the detritus of the last gathering of Episcopal bishops and deputies and pulled out this whopper that has been making the rounds.

Resolved, the House of Bishops concurring,

That the 80th General Convention celebrates the diversity of human experience, recognizing that we are all made in the image of God, and be it further

Resolved, that the 80th General Convention calls for the Episcopal Church to advocate for access to gender affirming care in all forms (social, medical, or any other) and at all ages as part of our Baptismal call to “respect the dignity of every human being”; and be it further

Resolved, that the 80th General Convention affirms that all Episcopalians should be able to partake in gender affirming care with no restriction on movement, autonomy, or timing; and be it further

Resolved, that the 80th General Convention understands that the protection of religious liberty extends to all Episcopalians who may need or desire to access, to utilize, to aid others in the procurement of, or to offer gender affirming care; and be it further

Resolved, that this 80th General Convention supports public policies at the local, state, and national levels in all our countries to support gender affirming care.

I have noted in previous blog posts the problematic phrase "respect the dignity of every human being" added to the Baptismal Covenant by the 1979 Book of Common Prayer and how it opens the door for all kinds of innovations once the meanings of the words "respect" and "dignity" change to mean "tolerate, accept, affirm, celebrate" and "personal desires" respectively. The Covenant's words were invoked repeatedly when same sex blessings and marriage were the burning issues. This is also how other dangerous ideas like church sanctioned genital mutilation can easily become part of a sect's "baptismal call". 

What will they think of next?

Polygamy, Physician assisted suicide?

How anyone can support the Episcopal organization any longer is beyond me.

    Surgery for transsexuals used to take place very rarely, and only for adults who usually spent many years cross-dressing and having intensive counseling. Providing these ghoulish "services" to minors is child abuse and should be punished with jail time and loss of medical licenses.

    The Episcopal leadership is demonic.

    1. Or at least they are listening to a demon.

    Pewster, there's a raging controversy about this on conservative websites. Videos from Boston Children's Hospital bragged about the numbers of "gender affirming" procedures done on minors (they have since been removed because of the uproar). I checked just now; there are pediatric "gender" clinics at both Duke and UNC. Probably it's being done in your state as well. TEC is just, as usual, going with what's popular now, without any thinking at all.

    1. Oh, they thought about it all right. They just can't help but think about it all wrong because they follow the spirit of the age and not the Holy Spirit.

  4. No big surprise, coming from an Apostate sect. As usual, the Word exposes them:

    Matthew 7:15-20
    New King James Version
    You Will Know Them by Their Fruits

    15 “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. 16 You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles? 17 Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. 19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20 Therefore by their fruits you will know them.

    1. Their fruits are rotten, and by that we know them.
